Montgomery County Artisan Trail
Make your memory for a lifetime in the eclectic galleries and artisan studios where craft isn’t just sold, but happily made before your very eyes. Galleries exhibit work from local artisans and offer classes for new apprentices. Magnificent expressions through sculpture, glass, pottery, jewelry, violins and soap making will create a lifetime of memories for visitors of the Montgomery County Artisan Trail. Home of the campus of Virginia Tech, the landscapes and architecture of the university lends itself to strolling through the museums, galleries and gardens on the grounds. Montgomery County is a perfect setting for horticulture gardens full of native plants and picturesque ponds. Historical museums showcase exterior gardens and interior historical pieces dating back to the Wilderness Road era. Lavender farms, buffalo stores, goat farms and local farmers markets feature homegrown and handmade produce, meats, peanuts, pumpkins, jellies and jams. Visitors can enjoy the many annual festivals where you can relax with ice cold lavender lemonade, get lost in a corn maze, pick a pumpkin, or just get down to the toe tapping rhythms of bluegrass music.
